Name: 'Laura'
Age: 19
Year of the Fix: 2016
Location: Staffordshire
Campaign: To highlight the after effects of sexual abuse

Someone known to my family started sexually abusing me when I was 11. It went on for two years.


It affected me mentally and socially. I became isolated and had really bad trust issues.


The abuse wasn’t reported straight away – it only came out when I was 16 and opened up to one of my friends, who told my brother. My mum then called the police straight away.


I made the film with Fixers because I want to raise awareness of sexual exploitation and child abuse.


It’s happening everywhere and not many people know that there’s help out there.


I want to show that you can be happy and successful after abuse with the right help.

The following Fixers helped me with this Fix:

Megan Field

NHS England North (CSE) and Beckie Wood from Sandwell Women's Aid supported me with this Fix.
